Theme: Drawing from the Eyes Out; Drawing 1, SEMO; Graphite; Approximately 24″x48″, 2019

Students are largely self-directed during this week-long project that corresponds with midterms, as I meet with their classmates about their midterm portfolio. The prompt asks the class to take what they have learned from observational drawing and perspective so far, and apply those skills to an extended drawing where they attempt to capture all that they can see, including their periphery. It is enlightening to see how students approach the prompt. Nikki effectively described her focal point and then continued to extend the drawing toward the edges of her vision.
